Student Achievements - Edition 13 - 2021

Congratulations to the following students on their achievements...

Congratulations to Gabriel Lowe (Year 12 Forder) who has been offered a position in the Queensland National Ballet School’s full-time Advanced Diploma in Dance course. Gabe will participate in this Elite Performance programme during 2022/2023 on a half 2-year Scholarship valued at $11,600. We congratulate Gabe on his acceptance into this prestigious Dance school and wish him well.

Congratulations to Alex Gellert (Year 8 Heaslip) who earlier this year was selected to play in what is referred to as a ‘Charter’ team for baseball, this team is a district team made up of the best players from the clubs. The team went on to play State finals against a number of other teams from SA, with the top two teams going on to play nationals. Unfortunately, Alex's team The Seahawks finished 3rd, however from this Alex was invited to join Baseball SA’s High Performance Development Program. This is an opportunity for Alex and other Charter kids to spend eight weeks building their skills with specialist coaches ahead of the summer baseball season. This opportunity is the start of a very exciting pathway to many more opportunities with baseball for Alex, including state and country representation and even maybe scholarships to college in America. Well done Alex!
